Shaped Theme ATc

Another ATC swap on ccswaps I want to sign up for, this time the theme is Shapes. We are to emphasise a shape. Choosing a shape and design our ATC using this shape in the background, focal point and/or embellishment. I decided on Star shape and picked this vintage image with the idea of utilizing the "spotlight technique" to emphasise the star shape. I printed the image in gray tones slightly smaller than an ATC size. Also printed the image in color and cut out the upper body in the shape of a star, coloring the edges with a silver Krylon pen.
Stamped small stars in the background with silver Encore! ink and a saying with blue StazOn ink.
Layered the background on silver card stock, added the "Star spotlight" and a small blue metal star.
